Another meal kit. This one? No thank you

There have been some… less than awesome meal-kits from Kroger’s (oddly named) “Prep-Pared” selections. Tonight was Island Blackened Cod. It was… acceptable calories… but that’s not the target I’m shooting for when having dinner at home. I’ve had much better success in the past, and haven’t documented the enthusiastic thumbs up for the Bacon and […]

Rainbow veggies

This is my go to recipe when I want something easy and healthy: Chicken and Rainbow Veggies.
